NEW YORK (AP) — The Metropolitan Transit Authority is providing shuttle busses and urging commuters who can to work from home following a train derailment in New York City.
The MTA says Sunday shuttle busses will transport commuters traveling on the Hudson line of the Metro-North commuter railroad between the Tarrytown and White Plains stations beginning early Monday morning. It says busses will also be used between the Yonkers station and the 242nd Street terminus of the local Broadway subway stop.
About 26,000 people use the Hudson line on an average weekday.
A Metro-North train derailed in the Bronx Sunday morning, killing four people and injuring 63 others. The NTSB is investigating.
The MTA says commuters should expect crowded trains Monday and is urging people who can telecommute to stay home.
Two additional local 1 subway trains will run per hour during rush hour Monday.
